CHESTERTOWN - Old bicycles can take on new life during North Warren's "Recycle a Bicycle" event, a community-spirited display planned for the month of June to coincide with the Centurion Bicycle Race preview debuting in the region this summer.
The North Warren Chamber of Commerce is asking that individuals donate unusable bicycles beginning the last two weeks in May. Each one will be cataloged and numbered, and "adopted out" June 3 through 5 to new owners who will decorate them with their own inspired designs.
The decorated bicycles will then be put on display along the Chamber headquarters' fence line on Rte. 8 beginning June 10 to provide encouragement to Centurion bike riders as they come through the area June 26.
Only donate bicycles that of marginal value and are appropriate to leave out in the weather for a month. Certificates and awards will be given out to those who decorate.
